The author, a sociologist at Brown University, examines the impact of the loss of one?s mother. Her research indicates that the impact is much more extensive than previously thought?and the consequences reverberate through the lives of the children involved, even youths in the teen-age years. A profoundly moving book that also reflects a sensitive, yet solid investigation based on primary and secondary investigations.
